High School Students Discuss Risky Behaviors

The Connection high school interns – Nikki Cheshire (Langley High), Monika Bapna (Marshall High) and Mary Grace Oakes (Madeira) – asked area high school students: What type of risky behaviors do some youth engage in and what do you think poses the greatest risk? Are there certain activities that can lend themselves more to risky behavior because of the nature of the group? Here are their responses.

Reckless driving is one of the most common and most dangerous risky behaviors that high school students engage in. Enough so that several parents last year chose to donate a car rather than give it to their teenage son or daughter.

The idea of ​​a health care system "healthy" sounds good. We need to support our New Health Care Laws with free treatments that help us to prevent disease.

These are some great kids and i hope that at least one of them will receive a MBA NC at some point. I think that the level of education has grown really fast in the past years especially because of the internet and the development of technology. We have much more access than we used to information.

Any form of risky behavior can be prevented through the use of common sense. If one of your friends has been drinking and wants to drive to OC , it's common sense to stop him, hide his keys or anything. Usually most of the risky and stupid things we do happen when in an euphoric state, so it's best to stay away from those.

I think that each teen has a certain view on what's wrong and what's good and these are just examples for the interview's sake. I think that the worst behavior is the physical violence. They can't take CCMC four years of high school.

Oh i used to love high school and the only reason for which i do not love it now is the fact that i'm no longer in there. I was looking at some pictures from Brevard CC and i miss the sea of different people moving in the same direction.

Thank you for providing this great post! My husband works in the army and we have three children.It is very difficult to support them financially as we don't have too much money.This is why I was very happy to hear that the Government decided to help military families and to support our children to go to school.I've always taught me kids to have a nice behavior and to be polite.

Education plays an important role in people's life and it is very important to educate our kids about good manners and how important is to behave good in order to become some great adults.I've studied at the Washington Adventist University and I had many colleagues that were having risky behaviors.It is very difficult to deal with such a student but nothing is impossible if you really want to help them.

I remember when i was in Hampden i spoke with my little sister about the importance of helping people and the next day she offered to be a part of the school council. I think that every child should do some work as an intern once in a lifetime.

These pictures remind me of the photos i used to take to my classmates. I love the fact that they are really sincere and their expressions are very natural but with a AR 15 Foregrip and some lighting..wonders!

I am working as a teacher to a local school where I try to teach children with disabilities to read and write. I've recently purchased some useful covered overlays for dyslexia from NRSI.com and I am very satisfied of it. Some of these children have serious problems and it is very difficult to integrate them in society.

As an attorney I met a lot of children who were having risky behaviors and many of them committed serious crimes. These children, especially teenagers tend to be violent and to be accused of aggression and drug addiction.

The best way to protect your children from these risky behaviors is to involve them in school activities, like playing an instrument, drawing, swimming or playing football. I choose to let my children play football. I bought many football equipment from Red Sox kids to knee shields to be sure that my children are protected.
